How does plancha baking work?  

After you have a plancha baking plat, the next thing you want to know is how to use it. The plancha can easily be placed on a BonFeu fireplace, fire basket or fire bowl and is heats up in no time. Within 10 minutes, the plancha is properly heated and ready to use. You pour some olive oil on the plate and you can start baking. A few things you should pay extra attention to is the fact that because of the high temperatures, the baking goes fast. Next to that it’s important to know that the centre of the plate generates the most heat, so be sure to place your vegetables and smaller pieces of meat more on the outside of the plancha.  

After all the cooking

Cleaning of the plancha

After each use of the plate, it can easily be cleaned. First of al it’s important to remove all food scraps and slide them into the fire. After that and when the plate has cooled down, you can clean it with a wet cloth.

Maintenance of the planca

It is important to keep the plancha baking plate greased at all times. Especially when storing the baking plate, it must be greased. This is because the baking plate is made of steel, which can rust over time.
